The Drink Up Jewish Link Sportstar of the Week: Nochi Book

The Jewish Link and Drink Up would like to recognize Nochi Book as this week’s Sportstar of the Week. Nochi is an incoming freshman at the Yeshiva University High School for Boys (MTA) and was a standout athlete at Camp Kaylie this summer, earning the football MVP award. When asked about Nochi, opposing coaches Aryeh Teller and Ikey Gutlove had the utmost respect for his style of play on the gridiron. “Almost immediately after watching Book’s first game, we regretted passing on the opportunity to draft him. Whether it being his middos or worth ethic, Nochi Book is an all around superstar.”
